Brothers killed in fiery crash

BUFORD -- Police on Monday identified two Flowery Branch brothers killed in a fiery vehicle crash early Sunday morning.

The victims -- Paul Keys III, 23, and Shawn Keys, 19 -- died when the Honda CRX they were traveling in left a shoulder of Interstate 985 southbound and caught fire in some woods, said Gwinnett police Det. James Flanagan.

The crash occurred between Friendship Road and Buford Drive. The elder Keys was driving, police said.

A 911 caller reported the burning vehicle at 1:50 a.m. Sunday. Responding officers found the car engulfed in flames, Flanagan said.

No one else was in the vehicle at the time of the crash, he said.

The cause of the wreck is unknown, though Flanagan said speed may have been a factor. An investigation continues.
